I’m no doctor, but from what I understand about how birth controls like this work, I would think that if you put the new ring in about a week before you’re supposed to get your period, that should be enough hormone in the time to stop the symptoms from starting, since you shouldnt get the same drop in hormone like you do as the old ring “wears out.”

Ha! One time I thought I was the next Virgin Mary when I missed a period by alot of days. Turns out I left my NuvaRing in too long. How about you just skip your cycle  altogether?

Seashells7:  I tried to start NR 3 months prior, for the same reason… I tried to skip the month prior to the wedding just to see if it’d work. It didn’t… I began my period on it’s normal start date, despite replacing the ring with a new one. I then proceeded to breakthrough bleed for the two weeks. I finally took it out altogether, as it just wasn’t worth it. Bled for another week or so, and it finally stopped. I did get my period almost as scheduled, but it was delayed and didn’t start until the middle of the honeymoon. It really wasn’t a major issue, so I felt sort of silly for stressing. 

MY OBGYN admitted she skips via Bc, also. She did say that the pill form is a much more reliable solution, if done properly. I didn’t do anything wrong in my approach, it just didn’t work for me with nuvaring.

I don’t quite understand why you can’t just put in another ring back to back? That’s what I do. If you skip your period, your skin problems should skip too.

It should be really easy for you to just skip your period that month. After you’ve had your ring in for 3 weeks, just immediately replace it with a new one. I’m prescribed birth control so that I can skip most of my periods and only have 4 a year and that’s how I do it!
